Assigned Texts - English 227 - Fall 2012

For this course, we'll be using four rather thick anthologies.  I've selected these anthologies to provide a good overview of fiction, poetry, and memoir.  Here are links to purchase these books from Barnes and Noble (which may provide cheaper rates than the bookstore).

The Art of the Story

Edited by Daniel Halpern (2000 edition)
The Art of the Story: An International Anthology of Contemporary Short Stories

The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction

Edited by Lex Williford and Michael Martone (December 2007 edition)

The Art of the Personal Essay

Edited by Phillip Lopate (1995 edition)

The Giant Book of Poetry**

Edited by William Roetzheim (2011 edition)
**Please note: I've found that the Index by Poem/Author/First Line provides incorrect page numbers, and that many of the illustrations inappropriately portray the female figure.  These are issues I was unaware of when ordering the book, and I apologize in advance for these issues with the book. --Ryan
